Soak into something strange. In this limited issue of Hamam, dive into the weird and sometimes wild bathing culture that surrounds us. We invite you to consider how sometimes the strangest things are actually normal, and the most normal things are truly strange.
Allow your curiosity to guide you through this limited issue. Explore sculptural soap ears, and peruse Ruth Kaplan’s photography of bathers across the world around the turn of the millennium. Contemplate the sea as a strange fantasyland in French New Wave cinema, and many more stories and pieces that venture into the unknown and the obscure.
